Any packages?- Zeinen doh peklech?
I shall tell you of Mrs. Kalamazoo
She was a teacher of Jimmy Jet
And when she heard his tale, she said Woo!
(She heard his story from a vet)
She thought, “Well golly-goo!”
If he can become a TV,
than I can be a calculator.
I can do it too!
She went on the calculator
and stayed on it all night
Till she grew a screen on her forehead
and said, “Oh calculator!”
“What did you do?”
A ON button here
and a + button there.
So now, in the Museum of Math
There lies a big black calculator
And next to the picture of Mrs. Kalamazoo
it says, “Don’t take this path!”
“The heavens are G-d’s Heavens, but their earth was given to Human Kind” (Psalm 115). הַשָּׁמַיִם שָׁמַיִם לי’ ; וְהָאָרֶץ, נָתַן לִבְנֵי-אָדָם
For this journal, we were asked to write a minimum of 2 paragraphs explaining what this means, and how it related to our mitzvah project. Our mitzvah project was to clean the beach. We walked up to the pier, and then we went back, filling garbage bags. Me and my friends also found a jellyfish! I think we did a good thing, helping to preserve the rule: Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.
I think what that quote means is that we were given Earth as a gift. We are so lucky to have a planet that gives us everything that we need. We need to respect it, or we will not be able to use it anymore. If we litter, then we destroy our gift from G-d. We were preserving that verse by cleaning the beach last Friday.
